ASN report

ASN published its report on the complementary safety assessments (CSA) carried out further to the Fukushima accident in Japan.
The ASN President, André-Claude Lacoste, delivered it personally to the Prime Minister on 3rd January 2012.

Following the complementary safety assessments of the priority nuclear facilities, ASN considers that the facilities examined offer a sufficient level of safety for it not to request the immediate shutdown of any of them. At the same time, ASN considers that for the continuation of their operation, an increase in the robustness of the facilities to extreme situations, beyond their existing safety margins, is necessary, as rapidly as possible.
